Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Stick
The 2017 Bauer Vapor 1X Lite stick is the top-of-the-line model in the Vapor line and is ideal for elite-level players who are crafty with the puck and want a lightning fast release. Its low kick point, round shaft geometry, Quick Release+ taper, and stiff blade are formulated to maximize the stick’s quick release and to get your shot off faster.
Bauer improved on the 2016 Vapor 1X stick by upgrading the blade with ACL (Advanced Carbon Layering) and by reducing the weight by 15 grams. The ACL blade makes the stick lighter and more responsive, thanks to the new carbon fiber orientation.
Bauer also upgraded the QRT (Quick Release Taper) Technology from last year's 1X to QRT+ by making the hosel stiffer. It will open up less when shooting, resulting in a more accurate stick.
Bauer continues to use Aero Sense 2 technology on the 1X Lite's blade, which is a rubberized material fused into the carbon fiber for improved puck feel. Then, the lightweight, stiff foam improves stick balance, quick release, and helps make the 1X Lite the perfect stick for stickhandling and for quick snapshots.
Once again, Bauer brings players the tried-and-true combination of Monocomp construction, eLASTech resin, and TeXtreme on the shaft to the 1X Lite. Monocomp is a weight-reducing and energy-maximizing stick construction method where the shaft and blade are one solid piece. eLASTech helps keep the 1X Lite feeling newer for longer by stopping cracks from spreading once they occur. Finally, TeXtreme is a carbon fiber layup exclusive to Bauer sticks that is 20% lighter and more durable than 12K carbon fiber found on other sticks. It helps create a lightweight, responsive, and durable stick. These features are only found on the 1X Lite model on the 2017 Vapor lineup.
The 2017 Vapor 1X Lite weighs 400 grams, which is the lightest stick Bauer has released to date.
NEW Advanced Carbon Layering Blade
All new, innovative design uses thinner and stronger internal carbon fiber layers for Bauer's lightest blade ever. The optimized carbon fiber placement adds strength and has an 11% faster release than last year's 1X model.
NEW Quick Release Taper+ Technology
Quick-release taper technology with reinforced fibers in the taper for added stability. It brings players 20% better stability than last year's 1X model for better one-timers and passing control.
AERO-SENSE CORE II
Designed with Bauer's Dual Density AERO FOAM 3 core blade for a light but crisp feel. A new evolution of SENSE technology enhances the stick's playability, performance, and durability by absorbing more energy. This complex combination is lightweight, improving the overall balance of the stick while improving torsional stability for a strong and SENSE quick release on all shots.
Micro Feel II Shaft
Rounded corners and double concave shaft walls allow the shaft to fit comfortably in your hands. The result is easier puck handling and superior control.
Our industry-leading single molding process ensures product and performance consistency. By removing excess material like over-lapping layers, resin and foam waste, the balance of the stick is improved and overall weight is reduced.
Exculsive to BAUER in hockey, TeXtreme® is ultra lightweight and strong carbon fiber. 20% lighter than conventional carbon, it reduces weight without sacrificing strength. A new silver TeXtreme® is featured exclusively on the Vapor 1X.
Proprietary resin system with carbon nanotube reinforcements increases durability by reducing the spread of micro-fractures caused by slashes and puck impacts, extending a stick's 'pop-life' to keep it feeling newer, longer.
Pure Shot Blade Profile
The optimized blade profile increases the connection point between the blade-hosel transition of the stick. This reduces the amount of blade deflection-the twisting or opening of the blade while shooting-improving blade control and delivering pinpoint shooting accuracy.
